A fantastic Cabernet Sauvignon from one of Napa’s top-notch vintages, this beautiful wine is drinking well now but is definitely worth a place in your cellar over the next few years. Its deep, opaque garnet color shimmers in the glass, with a rich, full body that coats the sides of the glass. Unfined and unfiltered as to not strip the true aromas and flavors from the wine (and to insure the true Howell Mountain terroir comes through) you may notice a subtle haziness – a good thing! On the nose, a depth of aromas; wild, spicy blackberry jump from the glass, followed by black licorice, dried herbs, blackberry liqueur and a subtle hint of vanilla and tobacco. This wine makes a statement on the palate – rich, full and lingering, with smooth, yet attention-grabbing tannins that carry through on the long, delicious finish.
